With those numbers, I would say PS4 is heavily overestimated this week and Switch is underestimated.

Why would the PS4 be at 533k? The $200 PS4 Spiderman deal didn't start till Sunday (the 18th) right?

Even at 533,000 units the PS4 is way down compared to 2017. It sold 810,013 units during the same week a year ago.

If those PS4 numbers are true...., PS4 is going to be the disappointment of the month by quite a margin....awful numbers. And if Switch doesn't surpass PS4 this month worldwide either, it will be a disastrous month for the industry compared to last year....

Ufff, i did not expected this....

Edit: And XB One.....well....no comments.

Is this a joke? Why would anyone buy a PS4 console in North America exactly one week before there's a gigantic sale on the PS4?

I'm shocked it's near the Switch globally on the Pokemon release week. I was expecting it to be destroyed this week, like  3:1 or at least 2:1 ratio in favor of Switch.

Here are the global hardware figures:
NS: 626,055
PS4: 533,999
X1: 197,143
3DS: 83,998
PSV: 2,221

This is Pokemon Let's Go week and a week before Black Friday. I must admit I am less confident with these figures. especially with Switch. I could tell the algorithm underestimated hardware sales as we have numbers from Japan, due to Media Create and Famitsu. For Switch sales outside of Japan I looked at what Pokemon did to help boost 3DS sales in the past. However, I am sure it is obvious what the issue with that is.

Yeah, especially the European numbers smell funky to me. Only 128K on Pokémon release just sounds plain wrong, especially when both Japan and US do almost double to that and RoW ain't too far behind these numbers.

Updates are still likely, but yup, it's a massive week for the PS4 and Switch!

                                                                                                                                            

I think Switch numbers should be at least 50k higher

Great sales numbers IMO! Down from Last year for sure but still great sales! Especially the PS4 being on it's freaking 5th year! Wow! Switch Sales are solid....may be a bit low with this being Pokemon week but solid none the less. And next week is Black Friday week! Ready to see what the big 3 are looking like for next week!

The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Even with Pokemon launch Switch still 100K behind in Europe. Sony has the continent locked up.

Okay so I get the Switch being so high due to Pokémon Let's Go... but why is the PS4 so high? I've just read it was even higher last year, but I assumed that was to coincide with a big game release or something, who knows though... anyone care to enlighten me please? :P
